The Northstar engine is a quad overhead cam design, and a world class 
engine.  The new Corvette engine is a pushrod, 2-valve design, as it 
always has been.  Most of GM's V6s are also pushrod designs.

Furthermore, I don't see the need to revere Audi so much that you'd 
consider it sacrilege to put something non-Audi in it.  Sure its a great 
car (some of them), but there are lots of other cars out there that are as 
good or better.
